Ride Green Strade Bianche

For this 2023 edition of the Strade Bianche Crédit Agricole, RCS Sport and Sei Toscana (the sole manager, of the integrated urban waste service in the provinces of the Toscana Sud, geographical area as of 1 January 2014) are launching the Ride Green Strade Bianche project (for both the Pro race and the Gran Fondo), based on separate waste collection, which aims at making the race increasingly sustainable, environmentally and territorially aware, in line with the objectives of 2030 Agenda.

This initiative is linked to the Giro d’Italia project called Ride Green, which starts in May. Being able to measure the impact of the event in environmental terms and, consequently, devising and implementing compensation systems for the CO2 emissions produced, is one of the best ways to make this green project virtuous and concretely sustainable.
